Tips To Prevent Mold In Carpet After Water Damage

3/7/2018 (Permalink)

It's important to get your carpet dry as soon as possible to avoid mold growth.

If you have recently had any amount of water damage in your Portland home, be it a small leak or a major flood, there is a heightened chance for mold to take hold. Very little moisture is necessary for mold to become harmful and start to spread. Mold has the potential to cause various health issues, such as repertory issues and fungal infections. Below are a few tips to help prevent mold growth in your carpet after water damage.

Dry Quickly

If you have had recently experienced a flood or a leak, it is important to get the water up as fast as possible. Utilize fans to increase the effectiveness. This will not only help to dry the carpet, it will also circulate the air in the area.

Use a Dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture in an area. They will make the air feel cooler and inhibit the growth of mold.
